Schell's Frost Hop #1 - Helles

This beer is from the most recent sampler pack from August Schell Brewery of New Ulm, Minnesota. They are the second oldest family owned brewery in the United States (over 150 years and counting).  They brought in flash frozen hops from Germany and brewed four different styles of beer. This is a Helles lager with Hallertauer Mittelfruh hops. 

The beer pours a gleaming golden yellow in color. There is a half-inch of white foamy head, not particularly long-lasting. The aroma is toasted grain, damp straw, light grass. The taste follows the aromas, grain, straw, a bit of bread, with a very bitter finish. The beer drinks very crisp, well carbonated. This is a beer's beer for lager drinkers.
